THE COMPLETE ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM FOR FEED & PREMIX
Autoxidation can be defined as a spontaneous irreversible chemical reaction in which molecular oxygen combines with nutrient principles in feed or raw materials, which results in, 'rancidity'. Animal fats, vegetable oils, vitamins and pigments are highly susceptible to this spontaneous reaction. This results in reduction of nutritional value, palatability, production of toxic compounds that affect the health and performance of bird or animal.
Autoxidation of fats is a spontaneous process influenced by several factors such as: Moisture, Catalysts (metal ions), Temperature, Enzymes, Type fat, Light and Air. The process of oxidation is a fairly complex process and has been fairly well established. It is a 3-phase process (Initiation, Propagation and Termination), which can be explained as follows:
The first phase of oxidation called initiation phase the free radicals are produced by the occurrence of light, air, temperature and heavy metals, these free radicals in the propagation phase fosters the oxidation process, results in high amount of peroxides in the and the termination phase is the breakdown of hydroperoxidases resulting in aldehydes and ketones. The production of these stable end products is the chemical manifestation of rancidity.
CONTROL OF AUTOXIDATION
The most commonly used method of retarding lipid oxidation in fatty foods is by the addition of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances used to preserve food by retarding deterioration, rancidity or discoloration due to oxidation. To be effective, they must be added as early as possible in the manufacturing process or to the finished fat. Antioxidants cannot reverse the oxidation of rancid oils, nor are they effective in suppressing hydrolytic rancidity, which is an enzymatically catalyzed hydrolysis of fats.
VICTUS LABS introduces an antioxidant of new kind to the poultry feed market called TERMINOX-V, the complete antioxidant system that takes care of oxidation at different stages. The TERMINOX-V contains TBHQ, Gallates, and Citric acid. We at VICTUS LABS use the food grade TBHQ and Gallates, which are widely used, regarded as safe and efficient antioxidants in the food industry.
ADVANTAGES OF TERMINOX-V
Prevents free radical formation
Absorbs any free radicals formed and prevents Propagation
Ensures thorough and complete diffusion/dispersion in feed
200gm / MT of Broiler feed and breeder feeds
